Nanosurf webinars and live demonstrations

Nanosurf webinars

Nanosurf regularly holds webinars on topics of interest to our industry as well as live demonstrations of Nanosurf AFMs. All these events are free of charge and open to everyone. We hope to be able to provide you with an interesting learning opportunity during these times of restricted possibilities.

Introduction to the DriveAFM

On March 25, we are holding a webinar for everyone who is interested in learning more about the DriveAFM. Dr. Christian Bippes, the product manager for the DriveAFM, will be holding an in-depth presentation, and will be available for an extensive Q&A session.

During the presentation Christian will show several example measurements he has made in the past weeks, and explain how he was able to achieve these results using the DriveAFM, also touching on the technology enabling this astounding image quality.

Using contact angle measurements to study and QC surface treatments and coatings with Biolin Scientific

Biolin Scientific Webinar

Surface wettability and adhesion are vital phenomena in a variety of industries ranging from coatings industry to pharmaceutical and biomaterial industry. A simple and efficient contact angle measurement is often used for characterizing the water repellency and other properties such as how successful a surface treatment has been. In this webinar, we will go through the background and significance of different contact angles: where do they originate from, why are they important and how they can be measured in practice. We will give examples of situations where different kind of contact angle measurements are effective in characterizing the water repellency of a surface.

The cancer world isn’t flat: why cancer researchers adopt 3-D bioprinting

webinar regarding cellular physiology

The growing push for 3-D tissue models is limited by challenges in automated handling, processing and scalability of the technology to various types of materials and high-throughput applications. To meet these challenges, ROKIT Healthcare has developed all-in-one bioprinting platforms and human-cell derived ECM bioinks that allow researchers to biologically mimic the formation of complex, heterogeneous 3-D structures and to scale the technology to high-throughput applications. This webinar will focus on the platform’s usage in cancer biology. It will discuss evidence for 3-D bioprinting capturing altered proliferation and cell morphology profiles, revealing more realistic drug responses, and mimicking vascularized tumor microenvironments – to suggest why bioprinting of cancer cells is a scientifically rigorous method to generate physiologically relevant cancer models for preclinical screening and testing, as well as for new therapy research. You will learn about:
– Key advantages of 3D bioprinting over other techniques
– Five alterations in cellular physiology of cancer cells in 3D vs. 2D
– Evaluation of how 3D bioprinted tissues have altered proliferation and cell morphology
– Evaluation of how 3D bioprinted tissues reveal more realistic drug responses
– Evaluation of how 3D bioprinted tissues mimic complex tumor-immune microenvironments
– Built-in cell incubator, diverse material use, and high-throughput capabilities of ROKIT Healthcare’s all-in-one bioprinting platform Dr. INVIVO 4D6

Sensofar presents applications for Archeology & Paleontology!

Sensofar presents applications

Sensofar Applications: Archeology & Paleontology

WEBINAR DATE:
Wednesday October 28, 2020
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT

 

How can an optical profiler help to discover the diets of extinct species? And how did our ancient ancestors use tools in the Stone Age? These and other questions will be answered during this session, which we will be covering the Sensofar solutions for archaeology, paleontology and related fields of science.
Several applications will be presented such as the use of scale-sensitive fractal analysis in microwear studies, showing the advantages of our 3-in-1 technology. We want to show you how we helped make this amazing science easier, faster and more reliable.
